Around 5 PM Tuesday evening, August 21st, our church steeple caught on fire. Firefighters were able to get the fire under control before the fire
spread. The fire was contained to the steeple area above the bell. There was no visible damaged to the rest of the Church building, except for water
in the foyer. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Thank you to all for your prayers. We are very
fortunate that this fire was limited to one area and that the rest of our building was spared.
Even thru the turmoil of this event we saw how God was working in our lives.
The firefighters even rang the bell for us!!
We have many wonderful members in our congregation that are willing to step up and help. Thank you to all who arrived at Church to offer help.  
Electrical power was restored on Wednesday and clean up was done so that our ministry can continue.  Worship services will be held on Sunday at
Remember this from May????
The repairs are still in progress.
